Ken Sema: "When I hear bankruptcy I think 'how?'"

2019-10-07T16:55:12.642Z

Ken Sema was one of the absolute key players when Östersund made it to the playoffs in the Europa League in the spring of 2018. Then they made a lot of money, but despite this, the club in the fall was close to bankruptcy and still in financial trouble. - When I hear bankruptcy, I think "how?" We have been in Europe and recorded 50-70 million and suddenly they are over, says the outsider to SVT Sport at the national team collection.



Just a few weeks ago, the crisis headlines were large around Östersund's economy and at the same time former President Daniel Kindberg was in court charged with eco-crime.

Sema asks how things could have gone so badly.

- Then you think what happened? Hope it turns around because they really deserve it for them to be in the Swedish.

He also says that he has been influenced by the club's race.

- I think it's hard. Very tough. It feels like that was all this with the European tour recently and that we won the cup. Now it has become incredibly difficult, all with Kindberg and the club. I'm actually suffering. Hope it turns around soon.

One that goes even better is the coach who led the team during Östersund's success, Graham Potter. He is now training Premier League team Brighton & Hove Albion, who beat Tottenham 3-0 at home this weekend.

- Graham is an incredible coach and person. He deserves everything and I knew he would go a long way. How far I do not know, but he will go even further. It would be awesome if he would take me sometime. He's incredible.

Do you have contact?

- We talk a little, but not very much.

Sweden face Malta on away schedule in the European qualifiers on Saturday.
